What do Clients Say?

Michael Hamby is the best realtor we have dealt with, in the many years and many houses the two of us have bought or sold, together or separately. He was wonderfully patient, and helpful in ways that I doubt most realtors bother with. As one could expect, he walked through the house to help us decide how to arrange things to "stage" the house to show optimally. However, when we asked for absolute candor rather than just polite suggestions, he helped me compile a complete list of what should stay vs. not, and I think it made a huge difference. When we needed information on who to call for what (junk hauling, handyman services, etc.) he had referrals for us, and when we considered cancelling a trip to house-hunt in our new location while working to get things completed in the house we were selling through Mike, he took over and helped us so that we could take that trip. He was extremely responsive -- texting, calling, always responding to our calls, even bringing us documents in person at times. Mike made us feel confident and secure, and our house sold in just 11 days! We were amazed, and I'm sure it all happened because we followed Mike's advice. I will recommend him very highly to anyone in the Annapolis area -- buying or selling. He's wonderful. (And I tend to be critical in my reviews, but cannot find anything to criticize in Mike!)

Over the past 40 years because of corporate moves I have bought and sold 12 houses in Ohio, New York , Maryland, and West Virginia. Over those moves I have come in contact with the whole gamut of agents, raging from the dimmest of light bulbs to the very competent. Mike is the best I've seen. What I really liked about him was his no nonsense approach to real estate. When we first came in contact with Mike we thought that we wanted to sell our home in Annapolis and buy a simpler house in Annapolis. When we told him our requirements, he said that what we wanted would be very difficult to find. He showed us a couple of places but nothing fit. At no time did he try to move us away from our most important requirement like too many real estate agents do. When we decided to move out of Maryland and relocate to Florida, we asked him to sell our home. His no nonsense approach to getting the home ready for showing was eye opening, to say the least. He walked through the house, with my wife in tow with a clipboard , softly "barking": that's got to go, those pictures off the wall, furniture to be removed or rearranged, major decluttering throughout the house, etc., etc. He went from basement to the top floor. He missed nothing, he left and we put it into fast gear. Took us two weeks to get the house ready. At that point Mike put the house up for sale. 11 days later the house was sold. At our price I thought it would take 2 months. After an offer was agreed to, an inspection uncovered a dozen minor electrical, plumbing, painting ,construction problems. The buyers insisted that they be corrected by professional workers. We had planned to go to Florida to continue our search there. I told Mike that we would cancel the trip in order to line up various tradespeople. He insisted on us not doing that. He knew a construction company that had everything that was needed to get these problems fixed. He would coordinate with the people and get them in the house as needed. So off to Florida, found the house we wanted and put an offer in that was just accepted. Mike made us very busy over a few weeks but also extremely happy with the outcome. His advise and guidance were world class.

Michael has by far been the best agent we have very used. He is proactive, honest, attentive to detail. He responds quickly & knowledgeably to any questions during the process. He is not pushy about a sale. I felt like he truely wanted us to find a home for our family not just a house. We had a wonderful house hunting experience

Mike Hamby helped me find the perfect waterfront home in Annapolis. His ability to capture my "need to haves" in my new home from the first day we met was remarkable. If you are looking for someone who is incredibly knowledgeable in waterfront property and possesses the highest level of integrity, look no further. One last point. Purchasing a new home can be a very complex event. Mike has the ability to keep the fun factor included in the experience. Thanks Mike!!
